It's an interesting read and I recommend it, but there's also a link to a "9,000-word article" at the site which the story is about:
https://consortiumnews.com/2022/06/02/u ... tium-news/
While you can certainly figure out much about the modern world by following along with the various articles regarding that story, including various connections with folks in the UK and US governments (including our very own "Mary Poppins of Disinformation"), I'll be focusing on a few slightly narrower bit WHEN I come back to comment. There's another site involved in some of this stuff and I'm pointing to a specific article for a reason:
https://thegrayzone.com/2022/05/31/us-t ... -blowback/
As Alex Rubinstein reported for The Grayzone, corporate US media has promoted known US white nationalists fighting in Ukraine as heroes, while whitewashing their records of murder and political violence. And while the Department of Homeland Security expresses “concern” over potential blowback when these openly fascist combat veterans return to the US, the administration of Joseph Biden appears to be doing nothing to stop them from making their way to the battlefield.
The US program in Ukraine bears such striking similarities to Operation Cyclone it could be dubbed “Cyclone 2.0”. The nature of the proxy war has all but been admitted by former US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, and the endgame of regime change in nuclear-armed Russia has been acknowledged by President Joe Biden.
While I am going to mull some of this over in my mind before commenting much, I'll leave you with this for now:In pursuing these objectives, US and British elites are taking a nuclear gamble. As even the DHS has warned, their empowerment of neo-Nazis could open a new chapter in the “war on terror” in which civilians will suffer blowback from battle-hardened extremists – imagine the Buffalo shooter with advanced tactical training. Millions will be considered by authorities to be potential white supremacists, ultranationalists, and Nazis. And under the pretext of fighting white extremism, a new phase of total surveillance and foreign “intervention” might begin in the Caucasus and Baltic regions.
Sure, we've all heard the stories about Homeland Security being concerned about "White Supremacists" from various CORPORATE "news" agencies, but have any of those CORPORATE "news" agencies mentioned the CAUSE for those concerns? Have CORPORATE "news" agencies stated that, by and large people in the Democratic party are sending them to Ukraine for training?
